Bede Portz

Bede is part of the Discovery Biology team in R&D. Prior to Dewpoint, he was a BrightFocus Foundation postdoctoral fellow at the University of Pennsylvania in James Shorter’s lab, where he worked developing therapeutic RNAs to combat aberrant phase transitions in neurodegenerative diseases and on ncRNA condensation.

Bede did his Ph.D. training in the Center for Eukaryotic Gene Regulation at Penn State with David Gilmour, where he studied RNA Polymerase II and became obsessed with the biological and pathological implications of condensates.

At Dewpoint, Bede seeks to apply his interest in the basic biology of condensates toward the development of new treatments for patients.
